Held virtually, graduate students from around the world present scholarly work on a host of questions and topics related to 2022 Nasher Prize Laureate Nairy Baghramian in lunchtime sessions from 12 - 1 p.m. over three days.
The Nasher Prize Graduate Symposium, started in 2017, provides graduate students from around the world with the opportunity to present new scholarship on the work of each year’s laureate. A weeklong virtual event, the symposium is one of the key ways that the Nasher Sculpture Center encourages the creation of new research on the practice of contemporary sculpture.
About Nasher Prize
The Nasher Prize is awarded annually to an artist whose body of work has had an extraordinary impact on our understanding of sculpture.

Then, the celebration culminates with the Nasher Prize Award Gala, held at the Nasher Sculpture Center each April.
